Could be that the multiboot option was not uncommented. We've seen that 
a lot the last couple of days. The right entry may already be there if 
multiboot is disabled.  Or he may only need to copy the boot section 
 from the Ubuntu menu.lst to the Fedora menu.lst and run update-grub 
 from Fedora. That assumes that the is the same. Or he could 
do vice versa and update grub from Ubuntu and get into both that way. 
At least we know the Ubuntu is aleady using grub2.
